-107- Qualunquismo


Noun. From Italian.

“A person who is interested neither in social affairs nor politics”


This word is steeped in history in Italy. Post-war, qualunquismo was a movement dedicated to removing party politics from the Italian way of life, and then gradually turned into a person who is still a believer of this (non-)political ideal. The word qualunquista can also be used in this context.
